Articles about Luke Schenscher

Luke Schenscher

The Schensch is back in the NBA, and on the summer league roster of one of the few teams who gave him an NBA contract in the past. Schenscher played 118 minutes for the Blazers in the 2006/07 season, totalling 19 points, 25 rebounds and 25 fouls. Unathletic and not strong, Schenscher was never made for the NBA, despite the awesomeness of his old school hook shot.

Since leaving the NBA that year, and after an abortive injury-riddled season in Germany, Schensch has spent two years back in his homeland of Australia. In his first season back, with the Adelaide 36ers, Schenscher averaged 16.6 points per game, a league leading 10.8 rebounds per game, as well as 1.4 blocks per game (third in the league). He said he would not return to the NBL in pursuit of more lucrative opportunities, but then he did exactly that, spending last season with the Perth Wildcats. His numbers tailed away to only 10.0ppg and 6.2rpg, and if his page is anything to go by, Schenscher didn't win over all the fans;

Boo Schenscher!! sponsor(s) this page.

Effective in one game out of every six. In the rest? Can't score, can't pass, can't rebound, can't defend (his man, the basket, or the pick-and-roll) and slows the team to a crawl. Boo! Booooooo!!! - Perth Wildcats fan, 2010

- Luke Schenscher

After going undrafted out of Georgia Tech in 2005, Schenscher spent two years either in the NBA or in the D-League trying to get back there. He then went to Germany for the 2007-08 season to play for Bamberg, but got injured on debut, and has since spent the last two years back in his native Australia. However, after averaging 16.9 ppg, 10.8 rpg and 1.4 bpg for Adelaine last year, his numbers this year with Perth dropped to only 10.6 ppg, 6.2 rpg and 0.4 bpg. He was still a key part of the Wildcats championship-winning season, but the numbers took a hit.

Schenscher recently played in the Foot Locker High Stakes Hoops tournament, which rank from April 6th to the 11th. Eight teams are playing in a summer time tournament with $250,000 (Australian) in prize money; it runs independently of the NBL league season, features some funky rules (such as bonus points for winning individual quarters), and one particularly funky rule involving 4 point shots. This was the tournament's inaugural season; others who took part in it included Lance Allred, Sean Lampley, Corey Williams, Julius Hodge, and the eventual champions were the simply named "Rays," who had on their roster former St Mary's big man Ben Allen.
